address. mr. obama's worst term a lot of evidence of the peril to the planet. record-breaking heat waves, forest fires, disappearing polar ice in a court with the prediction of the climate scientists. the effects were happening faster and more severely than predicted. you do not have to believe the scientists while reasserting american global energy leadership. even balancing the budget will be easier with this initiative. congress and the administration should begin conversation about a broad-based carbon tax. this would give the right signals on energy sources and use. it could raise money to reduce the deficit, restore our infrastructure, speed and finance conservation. there are a number of other commonsense steps that would make progress on carbon pollution and energy conservation goals more significant. the epa should stop dragging its feet permitting old coal plants to continue to spew forth toxic waste, harming the environment and the health of our citizens. it is past time the clean air act reinforced. make sure there are proper safeguards for the cracking technology. make sure

," your paper, says boil boil officials -- says obama officials ruled in power, courts cut power of appointment, judges limit action during senate recesses. the president exceeded his constitutional authority by making appointments when the senate was on a break last year, a federal appeals court ruled friday the court's broad ruling would sharply limited power that presidents throughout history have used to make recess appointments in the face of senate opposition and inaction. so, josh hicks of the "the washington post," tell us, how did we get to this point and what does it mean going forward for the president, all presidents, in their ability to make recess appointments? guest: well, just a little bit of background, i guess, how the president made those appointments. they happened at a time when republican lawmakers had filibustered to prevent the confirmation of richard cordery to head the financial protection bureau. so republicans had argued that no president has made a recess appointment during recess of less than 10 days, that they were also at that time holding these se
